The ‘Social’ is a good place to start if you are new to cycling or just coming back and need to start re-building fitness. Paced ride at around 11-14 mph for between 30-35 miles with a coffee stop half way round. One longer ride (45 miles) will be organised each month to build up the mileage and whilst this ride will still progress at the pace of the slowest rider it will allow plenty of opportunity for re-grouping if the group splits; however riders joining this ride should still be able to ride at the pace indicated. Riders should have a road bike and be familiar with basic road riding skills.
It's important that all riders are self-sufficient i.e. puncture repair kit and spare inner tubes and have good lights and mudguards where appropriate. All riders must have a helmet. For full details please see our club Guidelines.
